Barcelona’s official account mocks Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after Manchester United win.

ImageBarcelona’s official account poked fun at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after the club booked their place in the Champions League semi-finals with a comfortable 4-0 aggregate victory over Manchester United.

The Red Devils, trailing 1-0 from the first leg, showed glimpses of promise in the opening stages at the Nou Camp before Lionel Messi took the tie by the scruff of the neck with a quickfire brace inside 20 minutes. Philippe Coutinho’s audacious long-range strike in the 61st minute put Ernesto Valverde’s men out of sight and they joined Ajax in the final four of the competition after the latter defeated Real Madrid in Tuesday night’s other clash. Solskjaer sparked life back into United when he took over the reins from Jose Mourinho back in December – but, following their stunning comeback win over PSG in the last-16, the picture hasn’t looked quite so rosy for the Red Devils. The club have lost five of their last seven games in all competitions and calls of ‘Ole’s at the wheel’ have been few and far between ever since Solskjaer was appointed permanent manager at the end of March

Barcelona even used the phrase to mock the Norwegian in the aftermath of their quarter-final win. ‘Messi at the wheel #WeColorFootball,’ Barca’s official account tweeted after the final whistle.
